    Remarkable Obituary



    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend,



    Mr. Common Sense.


    Mr. Sense had been with us for many years.​


    No one knows for sure how old


    he was since his birth records were long ago​


    lost in bureaucratic red tape.

    He will be remembered as having cultivated​



    such value lessons as knowing


    when to come in out of the rain,​


    why the early bird gets the worm and


    that life isn't always fair.​


    Common Sense lived by simple,
    sound financial policies
    (don't spend more than you earn)
    and reliable Parenting strategies
    (adults, not kids, are in charge).



    His health began to rapidly deteriorate​


    when well intentioned but


    overbearing regulations were set in place.​


    Reports of a six-year-old


    boy charged with sexual harassment​


    for kissing a classmate;
    teens suspended from school for using
    mouthwash after lunch;
    and a teacher fired for reprimanding an
    unruly student,
    only worsened his condition.



    Mr. Sense declined even further when​


    schools were required to get parental consent
    to administer aspirin to a student;
    but, could not inform the parents when a student
    became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.



    Finally, Common Sense lost the will to live​


    as the Ten Commandments became contraband;
    churches became businesses;
    and criminals received better treatment
    than their victims.



    Common Sense finally gave up the ghost​


    after a woman failed to realize that a
    steaming cup of coffee was hot,
    she spilled a bit in her lap,


    and was awarded a huge financial settlement.

    Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents,​


    Truth and Trust,
    his wife, Discretion;
    his daughter, Responsibility;
    and his son, Reason.



    He is survived by two stepbrothers;​


    My Rights and Ima Whiner.


    Not many attended his funeral because​


    so few realized he was gone.



    If you still remember him,​


    pass this on;
    if not, join the majority and do nothing.
